Tak­ing no pris­on­ers

Sunday Times - - WEEK IN REVIEW -

Tues­day will likely see fur fly in the par­lia­men­tary port­fo­lio com­mit­tee on po­lice when min­is­ter Fik­ile Mbalula is due to brief the com­mit­tee on the lat­est crime statis­tics.

Mbalula has been mak­ing the news lately by is­su­ing what many re­gard as un­couth threats of vi­o­lence against crime sus­pects, and telling po­lice to pay scant re­gard to the law when act­ing against such sus­pects.

The po­lit­i­cal tem­per­a­ture in the room will be height­ened by the re­de­ploy­ment of ag­gres­sive DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard to her favourite com­mit­tee.
